The Low Down Jamie Lee Curtis Squares Off Against Michael Myers Again In ‘Halloween’ Trailer Published 5 months ago on Sep 29, 2018 By Will Gardner The Scream Queen herself is back to face off against her old homicidal enemy in this upcoming Halloween sequel! A Familiar Face Jamie Lee Curtis is set to reprise her legendary role as Laurie Strode in a new Halloween film. The movie takes place 40 years after the original, which premiered in 1978. In the movie, Curtis’ character comes face to face with Michael Myers (Nick Castle and James Jude Courtney) after his murder spree shook up the Midwestern town of Haddonfield, Illinois. Moviefone This sequel, inspired by the original, was written by filmmakers David Gordon Green and Danny McBride. Green is also director of the new film, while Jason Blum (Get Out, The Purge), signed on as lead producer. Halloween’s original director, John Carpenter, serves as executive producer and creative consultant to help bring Michael back to the big screen. Back With A Vengeance In this new film, Laurie has become obsessed with preparing for Michael to return. She’s completely safeguarded her house and isolated her daughter Karen (Judy Greer) in the process. In fact, Karen was taken away by authorities at 12 because of this obsession, with Laurie being close only to her granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak). Daily Express With this film seemingly taking place decades after the first, Michael went missing, never to be seen again. However, Laurie’s intuition turns out to be right as Michael reappears one Halloween night, murdering unsuspecting babysitters. Laurie takes matters into her own hands, refusing to let Michael get away once again. Missing Pieces Oddly, this sequel doesn’t consider Michael’s supposed death in Halloween II and the many other films over the years with Michael slashing victims. “We all came to the decision that remaking something that already works isn’t a good idea,” McBride shared in an interview. “So we just have a reimagining instead.” Though both Green and McBride have a background in comedy, 2018’s reimagining of Halloween is strictly horror. Twitter The film has already received good reviews from critics, with an approval rating of 83% on Rotten Tomatoes. Fans of the classic franchise will be able to see the story come to life for themselves this fall. Halloween is set to hit theaters this fall on October 19, 2018. Watch the official trailer below!
